By Aaron Humes: Leader of the Opposition Moses “Shyne” Barrow confirmed with us this evening that he has written the Governor-General to ask her to declare the Senate seats of Sheena Pitts and Darrell Bradley vacant, and that he has nominated two replacements.
Those replacements are former area representative for Belize Rural Central Beverly Williams, also second deputy party leader of the United Democratic Party; and from Corozal Southeast, former candidate and division caretaker Antonio “Tony” Herrera, who reportedly also masterminded his recent winning campaign for party leader and the recall effort against former leader Patrick Faber.
Barrow says the appointments are “in accordance with my policy on diversity and regional inclusion,” noting that he has had the pleasure of appointing temporary and permanent Senators from all regions of the country, including three women among them.
Williams and Herrera join unofficial Senate Opposition Leader Michael Peyrefitte, who is now the last of the original front bench appointed by Faber following the 2020 general elections. Pitts was the second-longest survivor, while Bradley replaced Khalid Belisle who was the intended original appointee and held over for by erstwhile incumbent Aldo Salazar.
The Opposition Leader said, “Congratulations Deputy Party Leader Beverly Williams and Antonio Herrera, I am confident you will serve your Nation and the UDP with distinction in the Senate. I thank Sheena Pitts and Darrell Bradley for their service in the Senate and look forward to their continued valued contributions to the party in other capacities in the Shadow Cabinet and Central Executive.”
The attorneys will respectively serve as Shadow Attorney General and Chair of Policy and Planning on the Central Executive and Shadow Minister of Foreign Affairs & Foreign Trade as well as Chair of Special Committees on the Central Executive.
